Re: Nemo change bookmark icons

I found in another post that the icons are stored in /usr/share/icons/<your current icon theme>/places/16, however the icons displayed on nemo are not the icons in this folder. I have my icon theme set to Humanity, which has nice colourful icons, but the nemo ones are flat, monotone and boring.

cinnamon bricked [SOLVED]

I just upgraded to Mint 19 (in another partition) and have been using it for the past few days. However yesterday I was trying to get xoscope to work. To do that I needed esound installed. I finally found I needed to install pulseaudio-esound-compat, which I did from the repository (so probably an o...

Re: Cinnamon crashes after updating Nvidia driver to 367.57

SOLVED: found the cure to my problem was just to use apt-get to deinstall Nvidia

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
Problem solved!

Re: Cinnamon crashes after updating Nvidia driver to 367.57

I had a similar problem, the error message /bin/systemctl command not found or similar appearing for a moment, then the system booting as normal. Did a search and found a site that recommended a command to fix it. Of course I can't find the site now, and all I remember is that it was an nvidia somet...

Re: How to install Kstreamripper

If anybody is still following this tread, I've discovered that Banshee and Rhythmbox also have recording plugins. I haven't had a lot of joy with either of them though, Banshee (with plugin) just hangs, and Rhythbox will play and sometimes record, but it, too, hangs eventually. On a brighter note I ...

Re: [SOLVED] Nemo got Ugly?

Hi Cosmo, thanks for the reply. I know nearly nothing about Linux so I didn't know that nemo -q actually killed Nemo. I thought it must have just changed something to make Nemo use the nice icons. I also didn't know Nemo ran the desktop. As far as my system goes I'm in the same basket as appalbarry....

Hello phd21, Thanks again for all the info, I really do appreciate the time and effort you've put into this. I hope there are many others who are finding this thread as useful as I do!

Re: [SOLVED] Nemo got Ugly?

Okay, doing nemo -q works, but Mint always boots up with Nemo ugly. So the first thing I have to do every time I boot up is open Nemo, open a console window and type nemo -q. Is there a permanent solution so I don't have to do it every time I start my PC? Second problem is that all my desktop icons ...

Re: [SOLVED] Nemo got Ugly?

Big thanks from me too!! Found the same solution on another blog but the poster didn't mention the bit about having Nemo open at the time, hence the command had all sorts of error messages. Your solution worked a treat!!

PHD21 You're a legend! Having fun with Amarok but finding the user interface a bit confusing. Also it seems to be KDE centric. I have also not been able to discover how to get it to record .mp3, it seems to be stuck on .aac. And I haven't been able to get the "help" to work either, hence the stumbli...

Re: How to install Kstreamripper

Thank you for the clarifications and explanations. I'm pretty much a noob at Linux so all information, no matter how basic, is part of the learning curve for me. I haven't heard of the other applications you mentioned phd21 but I will have a look. I had a look at streamripper, but it appears to be a...

How to install Kstreamripper

Hi All, I would like to install Kstreamripper but can't figure out how to do it. From my research it seems I need a repository and/or a PPA to do it, but I can't find anything that works. I've tried downloading and installing a few different versions (rpm, bz2) but there are always dependencies miss...

Yep, you read right. I finally bit the bullet and removed my 40Gb IDE hard drive and replaced it with a 160Gb IDE drive from an old computer. Booted from my USB HDD........ and NO SRST errno=-16 error!!! Tried booting from my DVD and Mint works, so does Mageia. The others probably will too, but I ha...

What a frustrating time. I have now tried many different distros, and not one will boot off the DVD. I've tried Mint 17.2 (64bit and 32 bit, my PC is 64 bit), mint 17.1 and Mint 13. Debian Live 8.2, Debian full 8.2 and Debian Netinst 8.2. Mageia 5 Live, Ubuntu 15.04, 14.10 and 14.04 and Fedora Live ...

Re: Mint won't boot off a DVD at all

Well I got Mint to boot! I had to use a USB hard drive I had lying around, and I used the Universal USB writer from Pendrivelinux to write Mint to the hard drive. Set my bios to USB-HDD, and it worked! I still get the SRST return code -16 error, which from further reading is apparently related to my...

PS. I also tried booting off a USB but that didn't work at all. The boot options I have in the bios for USB are FDD, ZIP, HDD and CDROM. I thought it would be ZIP but that just gave me a boot error, so did HDD. FDD did nothing and the PC booted normally into windows. Haven't tried CDROM as I thought...

Thanks for the quick response administrollaattori, I checked the bios and the drive was already set to AHCI, not RAID (never used RAID).
